Card with Pinwheels....

This will be the shortest post-EVER! I am working at the family doctor's (aka hubby's) office all this and next week! Getting the phone is the hardest part! To put it  this way....answering the phones is like opening a box of chocolate, because you never know what (who) you are going to get! ". I just took that from Forrest Gump!!
I was playing with my Vertical Cloud stamp. I had so much fun making this pinwheel card (see how-to). The best part is you don't HAVE to make the pinwheels spin in your card, so it's EASY!
don't forget to smile today
Yup, I am reminding myself (with that sentiment) when I am working at the office today and next week  :)

Adorable!!!!!!! LOVE this card Virginia! I wish I would have had time to make a card with pinwheels for the challenge, but I didn't get around to it. I hope your day goes ok with those "Forrest Gump" phone calls. :)

I have been googling nonstop and buying scrapbooking stuff. yet to make my 2nd card yet due to time constraint. But will be attending a scrapbooking workshop this sat. HOpe to learn more from the workshop. Thanks for inspiring me !!
